    Almost settled in now; the North Sea is still rolling around somewhere inside me though. The kids still ask after James, the knotty man. If you're around this area drop by for a beer or three and tell James the same.

    Jane & I are doing a barge handling course in a week or so - all was well until we were entering our marina - the berthmaster had let another boat onto our mooring and was shouting (against the wind) for us to go further round. You may recall Shamrock is not the most manouvarable craft and with a massive side wind we managed to scuff a plastic boat. Great intro to our new home. We are going back to Henley in a couple of weeks. I've fixed the generator exhaust now - bloody noisy thing though, even with the silencer fitted.

    Thanks again for all you and James did - a voyage to be remembered (by me anyway, probably one best forgotten for your part).

    Hi Alex,

    Hope your mum is making a good recovery. I am still making preparations and will be off on the 19th, if you are back in Fal by the 17th I will be going out for a few beers that night. Otherwise take care of yourself and I'll see you on the return leg!

    All the best,

    Hi Alex - thanks very much for your comments re: sailing south from The Canaries. We have not completely decided what do to do exactly however I am currently scanning the World Cruising Routes and Handbook of guru Jimmy Cornell for a more stategic way.

    You are correct about both not being able to clear in to Brazil at FDN, however yes - they won't chuck you off the island for a few days which may work okay for us. I think that we will be going as far south down the Brazilian coast as poss and then across to Capetown. I had visions of sailing to St Helena and then Namibia however prevailing wind wise it does not make sense and also to go as far south as Rio and then come back up north to reach St Helena does not make sense either...

    Happy New Year and thank you so much for sharing your insights and experience with us...

    Michelle and Nick
